Over the next week or so, we're taking an in-depth look at the rookie season for each of the Jets' 2019 rookie class. We continue today with a look at tight end Trevon Wesco, who was selected in the fourth round out of West Virginia.

On the face of it, Wesco had a disappointing season, as he only caught two passes, struggled in pass protection and did little to elevate the Jets' underwhelming running game. However, there were signs of usefulness throughout the season and some evidence of progression.

He typically had mixed results as a run blocker from the tight end position early in the season but seemed to improve his consistency as the season went along. He seemed to hold up well at the point attack and was able to handle assignments that required him to set the edge against defensive linemen while at times flashing dominance against smaller players in space.

Other than a chance to potentially play spoiler or improve/worsen their final draft position, the final two games of the season don't have much significance for the Jets. However, for several players, these games will represent an invaluable opportunity to further their case to contribute next season.

Head coach Adam Gase has already said the team is looking ahead to next year in their assessment of many of the young players receiving extra playing time. With such a long list of injuries, the team has been forced to throw several untested players into the deep end, with some showing signs of usefulness.

Let's consider some of the main names to watch:

Giants cornerback Janoris Jenkins exited Sunday's matchup with the Jets and headed to the locker room to be evaluated for a concussion.

Jenkins was shaken up after tackling tight end Trevon Wesco and walked to the locker room as the Jets kicked a field goal to take a 34-27 lead in the fourth quarter over the Giants. 

In his place, the Giants sent out Sam Beal to make his NFL debut.

The Giants already saw Nate Solder be ruled out for the remainder of the game after exiting with a concussion in the first half.
